143, Mr. Rogers! Won’t You be my Neighbor?
Mr. Rogers was my safe space. He liked me just the way I was. He smiled when he came into the room. He had pets (his fish which he fed each episode). He sang and played music, and introduced us to jazz music. He knew chefs, mimes, police officers, postal workers, and even the actress that played the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton).Judey KalchikPublished 18 days ago in Motivation
Writing for Love
A few days ago, I had an interesting conversation with my friend, Randi Gray Kristensen, who teaches freshman composition at George Washington University. Halfway through our discussion about AI, I suddenly realized that she was approaching the topic as a scholar, and I was coming at the issue as a writer. "In this wilderness of information," as Randi put it, she was concerned that students would turn in papers they had copied from Bard and pass it off as if they had written it. Randi emphasized that she taught her students how to formulate a thesis, gather facts not subject to AI hallucinations, make inferences based on the evidence, and deduce logical conclusions based on sound premises. This is why in academic circles, scholars like Randi ask questions such as "Who did the research and for whom? How was the research conducted, and who paid for it? Did reputable scholars in the field review the results?Geoffrey PhilpPublished 17 days ago in Motivation
Tastes Like Chicken
When was the last time you ate crow? I mean figuratively, of course, as the carrion-eating crow is generally deemed an unappetizing food, even mentioned Biblically as an animal that should not be consumed. Really! I'm talking about those emotionally hard-to-swallow moments that get your stomach churning and leave you second-guessing yourself well into the wee hours of the morning. We've all been there, but I tend to put myself in a position to eat crow like it's a culinary delicacy.Laura MerchantPublished 18 days ago in Motivation

Seeing the Light
Luna Moths. A tragic insect with such a short lifespan, humbled by its beauty and gentle nature. Born without mouths, these moths exist to reproduce and nothing more. Of course, if you were only given 7 to 10 days in your adult life, how would you spend it? While these moths are not rare, many feel graced by their presence due to their short lifespan - the probability of seeing one is, indeed, seemingly rare.Nicole FennPublished about a month ago in Motivation

The science is in: Exercise isn’t the best way to lose weight
The passage you provided highlights the idea that exercise alone is not a highly effective method for weight loss. While exercise is essential for overall health and well-being, its impact on weight loss is limited compared to other factors. The three main components of energy expenditure are resting metabolism, the thermic effect of food, and physical activity. Physical activity, which includes exercise, typically accounts for only 10 to 30 percent of energy use in most individuals.AlfivaiPublished 38 minutes ago in Motivation
